I mentioned once before about creating a Discord server as an alternate meeting place, or possibly a future replacement for this board if it ever goes away.

Is anyone actually interested in something like that? I figured it's better to go ahead and set something up sooner rather than later, so people will know where to find it if this board ever unexpectedly goes down.

Sure. Sounds good.

I have never used Discord, but sure, for this I will.

yes. That'd be good.

wouldn't that defeat the purpose of this site?

I like this idea.

I use Discord and have always enjoyed coming to this site, so sure I'll join a server if one is made.

Okay, let's see if I did this right.

Can anyone access this?

Ugh, I didn't realize they only last 24 hours.

Okay, I changed the settings for this link so it won't expire (hopefully).

I don't use Discord, but it's best to have a prearranged spot just in case. We've already had one sudden death of the board.

I feel like the Discord is already starting to careen out of control…
I should probably assign a moderator or two.
I'm thinking Chileanon and… I don't know who else is here is an oldtimer. Cats?

I haven't spent any time figuring out how to set up/manage a Discord Server.

I'm no fan of websites that haven't been around for 5-10 years personally. Either way if anything does happen in the future, us Azu fans always have a way of finding each other on any website and can plan for new hubs there. It's always nice to have archives saved up though but, that costs money sometimes.

Zero interest in discord, sorry. I would update yotsuba.moe to point to wherever, in case this place goes down, but don't really have any way to get contacted. I do idle on IRC (Rizon), but I don't really keep up with that any more either.

8075e780 No.4024

I agree that there should be somewhere to go in case this place goes down, but I really don't think Discord is the right choice here.
A big part of /azu/'s charm and history is lost if it's not an imageboard.

e93eb2c5 No.4027

>>4024
I don't disagree. I only chose Discord because it was free and took 0 knowledge or effort to set up.

I also thought a change in format might not be a bad thing, since the board seems to have so little traffic these days.

>>4019
I don't wanna promise anything because I never use Discord, I don't know if I can actually act as a proper moderator, but I think for this I can un-boomer myself, at least for long enough so I can figure it out.
Gonna get there later today.

Don't sweat it too much, I'm still not sure how this Discord thing is going to play out.
It doesn't have to be a permanent home, but at the least I figured it can be a good (free) place people can go for updates or regroup if this board ever goes down unexpectedly.

>>4031
Well, I did check it out yesterday and seems fun. Reminds me of the old /azu IBs, with the silly posts and random humor.
>at the least I figured it can be a good (free) place people can go for updates or regroup if this board ever goes down
I like your proactive approach.

8ca3915f No.4037

how about #/azu/ on rizon?

I expect it wouldn't be a place to go instead of here, in that case, but a place to find others until something new gets set up.

101251ad No.4056

Just a heads up, the discord is a little more organized and a little less of a clusterfuck now, so maybe give it another look if you initially wrote it off.

What I am afraid of is that discord will slowly replace this place even if it doesn't go down. :(

>>4115
If it's all the same group of people, what's the difference?

Honestly, the Discord has been more lively than this place has been in months. It's free to join and doesn't require any kind of download (unless you're using mobile) so why not give it a try? I understand new things are intimidating, but it's really not that bad.
My elderly neighbor got her first smartphone a couple of weeks ago (after years of holding out due to being intimidated by technology), and she's figuring it out much faster than she thought she could. 2020 is the Year of Change!

This is what I think every time I hear about discord:

"I'm too old for this shit."

I thought people just didn't post here often because they're afraid of breaking the archive with too many posts. Honestly this place is more like a tidy fanclub so it wouldn't hurt to have an extra place to take the heat.

Does the server really need a dedicated channel for each and every character in Azumanga? I'm in /azu/ mostly for Yotsuba and I kinda feel out of place.

b6a9ed4e No.4419

>>4418
It doesn't need one, but I was trying to keep the images and discussion a little more organized. It was also a lot crazier when the server first opened. It's pretty quiet there most of the time now.

Feel free to discuss Yotsuba in the general channel.

Is there any way to become a mod? Like of this forum? I check here everyday and see "some stuff" that should probably be deleted.

ad71077d No.4574

>>4560
Yeah, same. I always ban the IPs, but it doesn't make any difference.

If you see anything, you can send me a DM in discord and I'll get a notification on my phone. I usually only check this board once a day though.

0c225fed No.4575

>>4574
I assume then that you don't get reports submitted with the form at the bottom of the page?
I'm not >>4560 but I usually check here a couple times a day, and always report but stuff still stays up for a few hours or more sometimes.
I did pop on to discord last time and mentioned it in whatever the default channel was, literally never used it before but it was just as cancerous as I expected, however as long as registration isn't required then I don't mind doing that to report.

4d834e92 No.4576

>>4575
Yeah, I don't get any kind of notification when a report is submitted to this board. I can only see them from the dashboard once I log in.
The only control I really have here is to delete/sticky posts and ban/unban IPs.

I get Discord notifications on my phone when someone DMs me, so I'm more likely to see one of those sooner.

It feels like this stuff keeps popping up every day despite the fact that I always ban the IPs. I assume they're probably using VPNs or something so the bans aren't really doing any good.

I'm not sure what else to do to curb it.

>>4576
You could ban all external links and text formatting that LOOKS like links. Alternatively, just keep a running document of the URLs they use and ban just those strings of text. It will mean banning all bit.ly links, but those aren’t strictly necessary here anyway.

Also there’s more CP up right now. Cheers, Ralen.

10051d10 No.4633

>>4629
Those are all great ideas, but unfortunately I don't really have control over any of that stuff…
I can sticky and delete posts, and I can ban/unban IPs, and that's about it.
